About Pomeranian:
Pomeranians are known the world over as perhaps the most popular toy breed. Their ancestors were much larger than them, as is evident from all the other Spitz breeds there are, which include the German Spitz, the Alaskan Malamute, the Samoyed, and the Norwegian Elkhound. The breed gained popularity in the 17th century, thanks to Queen Victoria who fell in love with them and bred and raised several Pomeranians.

Pomeranian dogs in general are a very healthy breed, but, like any other breed, they are also prone to some common health conditions. Your adorable pooch doesn't need to get these diseases. He or she may be free of diseases all his life. These are just some unfortunate incidents that you can encounter. Luxating Patella

Tracheal Collapse

Black Skin Disease



Pomeranian Dogs are smart, vivacious, and outgoing dogs. They tend to love to meet new people, which is a great way to start socializing them when they are still puppies, especially if you see signs of a cranky, moody Pom. They also suffer from Small-dog Syndrome, which means they believe they can take on adversaries several times larger than they are. Early socialization with other animals of all sizes and shapes is a great idea and will help minimize your pooch’s instinctive suspicion of strangers.

Training & Intelligence
Pomeranians are high-energy lap dogs, which means they will switch between wanting to run around and engaging in energetic play, and sitting contentedly on your lap and watching you watch the telly. They are highly intelligent dogs and make great watchdogs, but poor guard dogs. The high intelligence level of Poms makes them excellent at obedience training, although this will have to start at a young age. Poms enjoy short bursts of creative training since they are quite stubborn and can get bored easily.

Litter Size-2 to 4 puppies (approximately)

Complication in Breeding-Yes

Pomeranians seem to have a hard time when it comes to breeding, so if you’re a first-timer in that department, it’s best to get the constant support of a vet. Small litter sizes and a frequent requirement for C-sections make this a difficult task. As in the case of all dogs, it is also important to have identified enough prospective pet parents for the puppies, so that they don’t end up on the street or in shelters. Although Poms attain sexual maturity anywhere between six to nine months of age, they are still too young to breed at this age.
